    Personally I like the silver one... just looks classy to me, but either would be a great looking bike.

    I vote for the silver as well, the orange looks too much like someone can't afford a rice rocket with tinted windows and $5,000 stereo pumping out Hip Hop compensating for the lack of a $50 muffler....

    It should be obvious what color a guy with the handle "SilverSurfR" is going to tell you.

    Orange is awesome, especially if your faster than all the guys who have silver bikes .
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    I'm not a huge fan of silver, but in this case I'd buy the silver bike. I think it looks much better than the orange bike.

    Yeah. The guy had a green one there. It was bad ass but the one I like is only available in orange or silver. I think im going with the silver. Time to start sheding some pounds. Also, what is a good bike rack. I have a black car and I dont want to screw the paint up. So whats a good one?

    Just get the one that YOU like.

    I had a brushed silver Giant Rainier the last couple years. One day I had to go.......well, you know.....in the woods Anyway, I stashed the bike in the weeds and when I came back, I could not find my bike Not a problem with the new color choice.



    I started on stealthy looking black and elegant silver bikes, but my taste has changed.
